To really know me well, you have to know that I love goat cheese (or chèvre or whatever you want to call it.)

I love the tart flavor and consistency.  When I found out that I could tour a goat cheese farm in the French countryside, I was beside myself.   As you can see from the photo, I really do take my goat cheese eating pretty seriously, as I came home from the farm with all of this loot!  Goat cheese that was soft, aged, coated in pepper, spices and shallots.  I had the best cheese tasting of my life!   The one thing that I noted in my tasting was that these cheeses tasted much less salty.  I later learned that goat cheesees are often heavily treated with salt to prevent decay.
